RBC-3100 is an unmodified, medium-viscosity epoxy resin used as an epoxy potting compound and in epoxy casting applications where a clear epoxy resin system is desirable. Depending on the epoxy hardener selected, RBC-3100 epoxy resin can be cured at room temperature or at elevated temperatures to obtain the specific desired properties.

(Note: The above properties are typical of a system cured with hardener #AB-312.)
A-110: A rigid, room temperature curing system with limited pot life and fast cure.
A-120, A-121: A resilient, low viscosity system with slightly longer pot life, that exhibits excellent resistance to thermal shock.
AB-312: Good resistance to heat, chemicals, thermal and mechanical shock, and good electrical properties at high humidity.
